I know nothing exists of the battlefield (lets here it for suburban
spiral!!) but I would like to see the land. You still can honor people who
died there by visiting the places where they die. By Honoring them every
thing comes into perspective and most of lives problems seem small.
Here is what I already have.
All I know is that the battle of Atlanta took places in or around the inman
Marta parking lot. And I think McPherson dies somewhere on McPherson Ave
but where. I would like as much info that I can collect maybe but it up on
the web to let other people to look at the spots that I have been looking
for. I have a desire to visit old unprotected battlefields and look at
before and after pictures. On One will be willing to protect the sites
unless they know How Ravaged other sites have happened. To see we have lost
battles already makes it all the important to save what it left.
You Obedient servant
I would suggest visiting the Battlefield Visitor's Center operated by the National Park Service and ask one of the rangers. I bet they can direct you to the exact location.
